The bigger battle is getting users to cut the cable, as most view a direct .connection as best, but that changes with time. People will not need hdmi or cables to watch 4k streaming on netflix.
Eventually the TV will be replaced by an all in one computer system, and everyone will just have one more pc in the home.
1080p sure. 4k, probably. 4k HDR with lossless audio (DTS-MA, Dolby TrueHD, etc), fully compliant HDMI 2.1, we'll see how soon...

Intel has been showing off WiGig-modified VR headsets recently. Uncompressed dual 1080x1200 90Hz video signals over wireless is pretty good, but the prototypes introduce another ~15ms latency. For VR, that's bad, but would be fine for lower frame rate content. Bandwidth alone isn't the problem, you need consistent packet transmission and low latency, too.

As for Belkin's new cable - if they state that it's 2.1 48Gbps, I'm more inclined to believe Belkin (and Apple, who also sells it as an HDMI 2.1 48Gbps cable) than contrarians on this forum.

Whatever happened with HDMI 2.1?

It is relatively simple - there are no HDMI X.anything cables.

HDMI Cables are either Standard, High Speed, Premium High Speed certified or not certified.

HDMI.org announced a new category of cable ‘48G’ a while back - as yet no 48G Certified cables are available for sale.

Contrarian or not any cable claiming to be HDMI 2.1 or 48G is simply bad marketing - ask Belkin or Apple to publish the Certification Docs for the cable.

Agree 100%! I've been an Apple user since 1984 and I've learned over the years to carefully read their claims, or any other mfr who "tags" to Apple for validation of their products.
